Each winter, the congregation of St. John’s “decorates” our Charlie Brown tree with a variety of donated winter apparel (hats, mittens, scarves and socks) for children who don’t have them. All of the clothing collected is then donated to a neighbourhood school. The Charlie Brown Christmas Tree appeared in the narthex on November 16th and remains through December 14th. We will be delivering the ‘fruit of the Charlie Brown tree’ to the schools next week.
This special project is a tangible way to express our support of the schools in our community. There is still one Sunday (December 14th) left to bring in more items. Thanks to one and all for sharing and caring and making this year’s tree so successful!
